A US federal judge refused today, Saturday, to stop the publication of the book of former National Security Adviser John Bolton, rejecting a petition submitted by the American administration, while President Trump Bolton vowed to pay an important price for publishing the book without approval, considering that the judge’s ruling may be a legal victory against his former adviser.

Judge Joyce Lambert's decision stated that Bolton erred when he apparently didn't obtain approval from the White House that his book didn't contain classified classified information.

"While Bolton's unilateral behavior raises major national security concerns, the govt has not been ready to demonstrate that judicial prevention is that the appropriate solution," he added.

Bolton's book - during which he attacks Trump, his policy and foreign relations - is now available in libraries within the us and can start selling next week, as 200,000 copies of it are printed, and enormous portions of it are published within the American media and within the remainder of the planet .

Trump's team last minute submitted a request to prevent the publication of the book on the pretext of compromising national security, because it deals with events classified as highly classified.

Book details
The book, titled "The Room where the Event Happened," records events behind the scenes during Bolton's tenure as National Security Adviser between 2018 and 2019.

In his memoirs, Bolton painted a dark picture of Trump, saying that he was trying to use American foreign policy to serve the interests of the person, including his re-election, explaining that Trump asked - on the sidelines of the Group of Twenty summit in Japan in the summer of 2019 - from his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping to help him win in American Presidential Elections.

The book also included accusing Trump of ignorance on a number of issues in international politics, and that the administration’s officials fluctuated between deep concern and mockery of the president’s words and actions.

Trump's tweet
After the verdict, Trump threatened in Bolton's tweet to pay a heavy price, saying he had broken the law by publishing "classified information in vast quantities."

Al-Jazeera correspondent in Virginia Fadi Mansour said that the federal judge considered that it was too late to prevent the publication of Bolton's book, as it is on the market.

The reporter added that the judge on the other hand said that Bolton erred in his speed in printing the book and leaking its contents to the media before the end of the process of security review of its contents by the US National Security Council.

The judge added that Bolton with this behavior may be subject to prosecution in a civil or criminal case within the United States for not adhering to the legal path, noting that the Department of Justice will pursue Bolton in the courts for publishing the book before completing his review legally, which is a very sensitiEve issue.
